Combining Socialist And Capitalist Approaches Into One

laitman_434Question: The Russian Federation published a new military doctrine for the year 2016 and for the subsequent six years. The new national security strategy determined Russia’s political rivals, which include the United States and its allies.

Likewise, the expansion of NATO, approaching the borders of Russia, and instigating “colorful” revolutions is seen as a national security threat. If we look at this from above, how is the world evolving?

Answer: The world is evolving toward a situation in which everyone will begin to lose and will come to a simple conclustion: We have to unite, eliminating all borders. After all, war is pointless. Today it’s impossible to fight using ordinary weapons.

We still don’t have the vision of the future as far as how the so-called takeover will take place. Ideologically? What kind of ideology can there be if by all accounts, it doesn’t exist. Economically? Go ahead, conquer me….

Today, we are approaching a completely different world. Even though Russia, the United States, and Europe have planned their strategies for the upcoming years, the world will draw completely different conclusions from them.

We should seriously consider how we can create a society that is capitalist in its form and socialist in its content. How can we get a person to work wholeheartedly? It is only through capitalism. How can we get a person to relate well to people? It is only through socialism.

How do we integrate these approaches?

The wisdom of Kabbalah recommends combining these two forms of relationship: a desire to work honestly—basically without receiving a reward—and a desire to treat people as yourself.

After all, the egoism works correctly, compelling you to do your best so that you build a healthy society based upon the principles of bestowal: “received—gave away” or “gave away—received.” This is exactly what is neccessary in production, in commerce, and in fact, in everything.

The relationships between people have to be socialistic, equal concern for all: for children, for the environment, for everything else, but this has to be done from the bottom of one’s heart. And how is it possible to wholeheartedly compete with each other at work and to relate to each other like loved ones in all other circumstances? It is only with a capitalist approach to work relationships and a socialist approach to everything else.

  1. Nice and true. Actually, the closest thing we have seen to this is European socialism, which indeed was the best available system. Unfortunately it isn’t working so well at the moment.. This ties into one of the articles above….if everyone isn’t accepting of, educated in, and mutually responsible for supporting a mutually cooperative and beneficial society…it all falls apart.
